A multitude of media polls were rushed out last week following a Washington Post report that detailed allegations of Roy Moore dating teenaged girls forty years ago. These polls and subsequent media reports excitedly claimed Mr. Moore’s support among Alabama voters was crumbling.
While Mr. Moore’s alleged guilt or innocence regarding the allegations of dating young women/girls decades earlier remains unknown, it seems the voters of Alabama are now casting an increasingly skeptical eye on the media reports of the special election senate race and it appears momentum is actually returning to the Moore campaign. Democrats and the media know this to be true as indicated by the barrage of anti-Moore coverage over the last 48-hours and millions of dollars quietly pouring into the race from outside sources. The Doug Jones campaign is being especially careful not to be seen as cuddling up to big name Democrat Party outsiders like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer who are despised by most in the right-leaning state.
Here is what political insiders know of the Alabama senate race – truths the Establishment Media refuses to detail:
**After the Washington Post story broke outlining allegations of Moore dating teenage girls some forty years ago polling showed the race tightening. These polls were skewed, though. There was some loss of support for Moore but it was not double-digit as the media reports suggested. Judge Moore’s true lead among Alabama voters has never fallen below double-digits.
**The initial pull-back among Moore’s support has since started to reverse and his true lead among Alabama voters is likely approaching the 12-point mark as of today.
**Undecided Alabama voters will likely break for Moore by up to a 2 to 1 margin on Election Day which could push his margin of victory to 15 points or more.
Is Judge Roy Moore actually guilty of questionable judgement/behavior forty years ago? Perhaps, but for now the people of Alabama refuse to fully accept at face-value the media-generated attacks against him. While Moore remains a controversial figure he does not appear so controversial that he will lose to his Democrat opponent, Doug Jones.
Watch for the Establishment attacks against Moore to intensify in the coming days. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is said to be working closely with Karl Rove-connected political operatives to try and counter the recent Roy Moore resurgence in Alabama. This will be a collaborative effort between McConnell, Rove, and various media groups.
If you thought the race was a brutal one already – just wait.
You won’t have to wait long.
